Volendam midfielder Sam Lautenschutz will decide on his future by the end of this month, according to the Sun.

Chelsea are among six teams tracking the 15-year-old, with Manchester City, Tottenham, Leicester City and Charlton Atletic interested in the player.

Ajax are also in the mix for Lautenschutz and much may depend on whether the Dutchman wants to remain in his homeland to continue his development or move abroad.

The Blues have recruited a number of young players from the Netherlands over the years, including the likes of Nathan Ake and Marco van Ginkel.

Vitesse Arnhem is Chelsea’s feeder club in the country with the likes of Mason Mount and Lewis Baker having spent time there over the last couple of years.

Lautenschutz, meanwhile, has yet to play a senior game and has only moved up to start playing for Volendam’s Under 17 side at the start of this campaign. We will have to wait and see if he is the latest youth player to make a move to Stamford Bridge.
